This is a song using a different arrangement of the melody of Rodney Rawlings's YouTube video "Comet." The lyric is as follows:

THE SIMPLE MAN

He was a simple child, so pure in heart and mind--
Caught in this crazy noise of all confused mankind.
Still, as a simple youth, his thoughts would never sway
Far from the simple truth. He's steadfast to this day.

Surely the kind of person all of us should be--
In the chaos here a sounding melody.

We're yearning now, and learning how
Our happiest hour was just one flash in the pan.
It's so unfair. Will no one share
His fervent reply to all the troubles of man?

Look to THE SIMPLE MAN who sings for you and me,
In the darkness here a haunting melody.

Look to THE SIMPLE MAN who sings for you and me,
In the darkness here a haunting melody.
